Green Pathways Program Internship for Environmental Careers

Young people ages 14 to 24 enrolled in BYA’s new Green Pathways Program are preparing for environmental jobs in energy, urban agriculture, water conservation, and more. The program started in March.

BYA is partnering with the Roots of Success organization to provide hybrid training/ environmental literacy instruction. Young people learn the fundamentals of various green careers and pathways in an eight-module program. Interns are paid $15.75 per hour.

“Once we start learning about the different jobs you can get in the green sector, it stirs interest,” says Sequence Young, BYA’s Garden and Green Pathways Coordinator. “The possibilities
are endless.”
